Custom Wheel Building Tools
We are always looking for our next thing to help work more efficiently and have some fun while doing it so we went down the rabbit hole of 3d printing tools for bike mechanics. The one we are most excited about is the nipple shuffle box that drastically speeds up lacing time. This isn't a new idea but we feel ours is the best on the market. We can even customize them with things like shop names, random text, different colors, etc! If this is something you are interested in be sure to check the tools page on our website to order your own.
Other tools we are working on are a speed driver for square drive or ENVE style spoke nipples. We have our prototype finished up and the production run is currently in queue at the machine shop here in town. We may offer one for traditional slotted spoke nipples as well that can reach deeper section rims but that one is still up in the air. We have the drawings finished on it and are just trying to decide if there is enough demand for a production run.
If there is any tool you wish you had as a bike mechanic, be sure to reach out and let us know as we are always open to building new tools if it is within our capabilities!
Robert Mayfield heads to St. Louis in search of a velodrome he can ride.
We build up one of our favorite fat bikes on the planet, the Why Big Iron! Let us know if you would like us to help you build your own dream fatbike!
This Cinelli Vigorelli is about as nice as it gets for fixed gear crit bikes! We hope to make these videos a regular thing so let us know what you think about them!
A closed velodrome will not stop Brian Abers of Brihop Coaching to make sure his athletes can put in the work! It is always fun seeing the creative ways coaches get around hurdles to training and this is definitely one of them that was fun to follow along.
You can find Brian here - brihopcoaching.com *his website is horribly dated but he is a great coach...
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
